PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**Newly REVISED! Bonus included: An example experiment that can be shared by the teacher with the class!

This is an excellent homework activity to reinforce the Scientific Method. This activity allows one student a week to be the "scientist" and present a simple experiment (about 5 minutes) to the class. I've included the letter to send home to parents with the sheets for the child to complete about his/her experiment. Easy way to incorporate science and the scientific method into your classroom!

I've done this many times in my classroom and it was so much fun! I even bought a lab coat from a local scrubs store and had "Scientist of the Week" put on it. Then each week the "scientist" got to wear the coat during his/her presentation! Adorable photo opportunity, too!

Students love this activity so much and they can name who did what experiment at the end of the year because it is so engaging! All the teacher has to do is teach the Scientific Method in class then simply explain this homework assignment and send it home with one student! So easy to implement, but the rewards are awesome!

I'd love to hear how it works for your students!
